During the shoot of their movie “Bubog”, Baron Geisler is in hot water again after he allegedly urinated on fellow actor Ping Medina.
In a Facebook post on November 28, Medina furiously narrated the events before and during the incident while shooting for their film in Subic. According to Medina, the peeing incident happened during a scene wherein his character would be covered with packing tape until he suffocates, reminiscent of victims of extrajudicial killings. He mentioned that Geisler whispered to him, “May gagawin ako sayo Ping ah. Sana wag ka magalit.”, and thought the actor would spit on him but tried to stay in his character until in the midst of the intense scene. When the scene ended, Medina said he was in a fit of rage and punched the steel wall of the cargo crate until he stormed out and slapped Geisler. He also recalled that before the incident, Geisler got drunk and even had a can of beer in his hand during the rehearsals, when he frequently forgot his lines. Medina ended the post by urging his fellow actors against working with Geisler. The film director Arlyn Dela Cruz also took to Facebook to express his dismay on Geisler’s behavior and advised him to seek treatment for alcoholism and mind his intake of anti-depressant pills.
Defending himself, Geisler took to Facebook and insisted the incident was a misunderstanding and that he asked for her permission for what he did. He also asked the netizens to not judge so easily.
